I was set up on a blind date a few weeks ago by a friend. Usually, blind dates are a disaster but this time it was different. We get along extremely well and have been inseparable since. But that's not all.

Last night I spent some time with her at her parent's house. Imagine my surprise when I walk in to find a 60"+ HDTV widescreen set, full-on surround sound setup, progressive scan DVD, and HDTV tuner. And it wasn't no-name brands mind you. We're talking Polk, Infinity, Sony, etc. To demo his setup he puts in Episode 1 and skips to the pod race sequence. I was blown away. Posted Image

Don't know if that's ever happened to anybody else, but I thought it was cool.

Congrats. It would be even freakier if you discovered her father was a member here.

I didn't think to ask him if he was a member. I guess I better not post any personal dating details here just in case. Posted Image

If he were a member here, I'm sure he would have chosen something other than Episode I to demo his system... Posted Image

About the Episode 1 demo, he actually mentioned that the video had a bit too much edge enhancement, but was mainly looking to demo the 5.1. Posted Image

What did your date do while you and her dad were checking out the pod race?

Did she break out the SPL meter? Show you her Super Bit DVD collection? Posted Image

Hmmm... sounds like an HTFer to me. And if he's not, he should be!! Sign him up! Posted Image

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

This is the father's ploy with all prospective boyfriends. He gets them interested in the HT system which causes them to stop paying attention to his daughter. Presto... no more boyfriend and the blood pressure is back to normal! Posted Image
